Sussman Shank LLP is proud to announce that it has been recognized, for the eighth year, as one of the “100 Best Green Workplaces in Oregon” by Oregon Business magazine.  We were one of just three law firms recognized on the annual list.

The 100 Best Green Workplaces are determined by an anonymous employee survey and an independent assessment of each employers’ sustainability practices.  This year, nearly 400 companies and organizations were eligible for this year’s green list.  Approximately 15,500 total surveys were completed this year as a part of this project.   

Sussman Shank has a Sustainability Oversight Committee that regularly meets and drives the firm’s ongoing commitment to green initiatives.  Our efforts to encourage a green workplace include implementing effective waste practices, paperless legal practices and file management, and educating the office about sustainability as a lifestyle.  “Sussman Shank works hard to practice sustainability at work, and it is always rewarding for our efforts to be recognized.  Our recognition on the 100 Best Green Workplaces in Oregon list is important to our firm, and we are proud to be featured on the list once again,” says Thomas Jerin, Chair of the firm’s Sustainability Oversight Committee.
